Rock god or creepy stalker?

Share

You know, I was listening to a beloved classic rock tune today, humming along with the lyrics which I know oh so well, and it suddenly dawned on me:

Bob Seger is a creepy stalker!

The song I’m talking about is ‘Mainstreet’.  Let’s take a look at the lyrics and you can decide for yourself.

Excerpt #1:

There was this long lovely dancer in a little club downtown
I loved to watch her do her stuff
Through the long lonely nights she filled my sleep
Her body softly swaying to that smoky beat

Not yet convinced?  Let’s take a look at Excerpt #2:

Well I’d stand outside at closing time
Just to watch her walk on past
Unlike all the other ladies, she looked so young and sweet
As she made her way alone down that empty street

WELL?!
